Rockfax Description
20m. A stunning line across the impending wall to gain the hanging arete, first sniffed out, amazingly, by a young Pat Littlejohn. A remarkably popular solo, considering the first section is above a ledge. After gaining the flat ledge on the arete - the 'diving board', the final corner is only grade 4. © Rockfax
